Default If USC doesn't make the national title, what is your dream matchup this year?

We all hope this is the year Carolina finally not only wins the SEC, but breaks through had holds the crystal ball.

With that said, let's have a little fun.

First, if USC doesnt make it, which two teams DO play for the title?

Second, what is your dream national title game this year that doesn't include South Carolina?


1-If USC doesn't make it, I think the national title game will be Alabama and Ohio State.

The one I'd like to see this year if USC doesn't make it..well I have two.

Alabama and Stanford-really similar teams...both are hard-nosed, physical and I think are just fun to watch. I see this going very similar to the Bama-LSU game 1 tilt.

Louisville and Ohio State-just the drama of Urban vs his former assistant Strong sells this. The man who really brought the spread offense to the forefront (Meyer) against the man who saw it every day, and knows how to stop it (Strong). Also, Braxton Miller vs Teddy Bridgewater...a QB who has had controversy follow him (Miller) vs the QB that could win the Heisman this year, and through reports is a solid kid (Bridgewater). Also, to win OSU would have to go undefeated for the second-straight season, winning 24 straight games...a very tough feat.

And of course, Strong parlays the Cards upset Meyer's old team, will not get a shot to beat Meyer himself.
Also, the SEC title streak ends would be a huge national headline.

I'll throw one more...
Oklahoma and Texas A&M
Former Southwest and Big 12 conference foes face off not only for a title, but conference bragging rights.
Honestly, more of a nostalgic, lost rivalry reason for this one.
Can the Big 12 end the SEC's dominance of national title game, or does TAMU give the SEC 8 in a row?

I'd hate to see Louisville (undeserving) unless they were playing Gamecocks.

I've always thought SC v Oregon st would lead to announcer discomfort and be ripe for all kinds of FCC violations. Bonus if it's the NC game.

If we don't make it, I think it will be Alabama-Oregon. As for who I would like to see, if it isn't us I don't really care one way or the other, so maybe a MAC team or something crazy like that.

They only played each other for a short stretch - Oklahoma was in the Big 8.

But keeping with that theme, I'd love to see a Big 12 team also - TCU. Other than the HBC, I think Patterson is the best coach in the country and definitely the best at getting the most out of his people. They play the David vs Goliath card well. As for an opponent, I'll say Louisville. Another team outside the usual big dogs and their success = UK never gets any momentum going and I like that a lot.

I was at Oregon State after Thanksgiving for the Civil War against Oregon. Friends I made there knew I was a Gamecock fan/grad. So we talked a lot about a possible match up in any sport and how awesome that would be. Trust me - they think about this stuff too!
